The ABA Journal has its new list of 100 best law blogs.

Here's the list. My blog is in the category "IMHO." ("These sites, while sometimes taking a substantive look at the law, often attract our attention with rants — or let’s say strong opinions — about what’s in the news or creating a stir in the legal community.")

You can vote for me here.

Ok, but we will need some walking around money and a Czar's job, maybe Czar of Purpleness.

Ah, yeah, I shouldn't fall for their scheme of getting traffic by setting up a poll. But I have some pride. Or I don't have enough pride. Or whatever.

I note that neither Huge Hewitt or Glenn Reynolds, both Law Profs, got included as law blogs

There are good ways to combine popular culture and legal posts, Ann, that you haven't thought of (or maybe you don't think they're worthy topics for discussion).

For example, take the Tiger Woods case. You could post about why the Florida State Police aren't protecting Tiger from what may be an abusive wife, as the law requires them to do.

Tiger appears to be a victim of domestic violence, and his wife keeps sending the police away when they try to interview him.

The law doesn't allow the abused spouse to stand between police and his (or her) victim.

And yet the police are not helping Tiger. Are they opening themselves to a massive civil rights violation lawsuit by not granting Tiger Woods equal rights ensconced in Florida law?

If the situation were reversed, and Tiger was beating the crap out of his wife, chasing her down the street with a 7-iron ... would the police stand idly by while the abusive husband refuses to allow them to interview the abused wife?

Somehow, I don't think they would. The law doesn't allow police that discretion.

I'd love to read a post about what the law in Florida requires of police officers who find spouses who appear to be victims of domestic violence.

Fascinating.

I'd love to know how much you would pay for that.

Perhaps we can work something out.
